Honeymoon like a celeb

Posted in HOTELS + VILLAS By Maggie O' Sullivan

Looking for a honeymoon destination that offers both luxury and an away-from-it-all ambience? Our friends at The InspiringTravel Company suggest five perfect locations and it’s no coincidence that all have welcomed some of the world’s most high-profile (and private) newlyweds. 

North Island, Seychelles

Celebrity honeymooners The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

Best time to stay Year round

North Island (above) is the most exclusive resort in the Seychelles, with only 11  secluded villas on the entire island. Honeymooners can sink blissfully into their sunbeds set well away from prying eyes, served by their own personal butler. Other spoiling attractions include easy access to world-class diving sites and a ‘no-menu’ private kitchen. From £15,195 per person for seven nights on an all-inclusive basis, including flights and return transfers. Parrot Cay, Turks & CaicosParrot Cay by COMO, Turks and Caicos

Celebrity honeymooners Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner

Best time to visit December-March

The five-star Parrot Cay by COMO offers the ultimate desert island paradise. Set in 1,000 acres of unblemished natural beauty on the sparkling seas of Turks and Caicos, the resort offers relaxation, romance and privacy. Guests can choose from an array of spa treatments at the award-winning ‘CoMo Shambhala retreat’, join a pilates or yoga class or chill out by the pool or on the white-sand beach. From £1,755 per person for seven nights on a b&b basis, inclusive of return airport transfers. Villa d'Este, Lake ComoVilla D’Este, Lake Como

Celebrity honeymooners Emily Blunt and John Krasinski

Best time to stay May, June & September (July/August are more crowded)

Set on the banks of Northern Italy’s Lake Como, the 16th-century Villa D’Este is built in classical Italian style and surrounded by manicured gardens. By day, guests can enjoy the hotel’s extensive sports facilities or unwind in the private pool on the lake. By night, the hotel promises exquisite gourmet cuisine and the finest Italian wines. From £1,527 per person for seven nights on a b&b basis, inclusive of return airport transfers. Viceroy, AnguillaViceroy, Anguilla

Celebrity honeymooners Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr

Best time to go May-August

The sleek and sophisticated Viceroy is set on 35 acres planted with palm trees, on the beautiful Caribbean island of Anguilla. Guests can spend their days unwinding by the pool, at the resort spa or perhaps learning a new watersport. Come nightfall, they can dine at any one of the five restaurants or cosy up in their own candle-lit villa. From £2,395 per person for seven nights on a b&b basis, inclusive of return airport transfers. Le Sirenuse, Amalfi CoastLe Sirenuse, Amalfi Coast 

Celebrity honeymooners Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth 

Best time to go May-September

We can think of few places that are more romantic than Italy’s Amalfi Coast. The wonderful Le Sirenuse, originally the 18th-century summer residence of a noble Neapolitan family, sits on the cliffs of Positano, overlooking the glorious bay below. The hotel’s rare mix of luxurious yet intimate ambience makes it truly special, the setting for many unforgettable memories. From £1,889 per person on a b&b basis inclusive of return airport transfers.
